Loud bangs all over franconia: what is a sonic boom and how does it occur??
The air force employee in neuburg/donau was not yet able to give any precise information on how long the investigations of the technicians will continue. At present, it is only clear that a bird strike triggered the incident. He added that it was a routine procedure in such incidents. Air traffic in nurnberg was probably not affected by the incident. Various military aircraft repeatedly use the durer airport for emergency landings. Foreign troops currently stationed in germany, for example, use it to ensure supplies for their forces.

Pope gives “urbi et orbi” blessing

Pope gives 'urbi et orbi' blessing

From the central loggia of st. Peter’s cathedral, he gave the traditional "urbi et orbi" blessing in front of tens of thousands of people (the city and the district). The christmas message of the pope elected in march was broadcasted live in about 50 countries.

In view of the growing number of refugees from syria and numerous african countries, the pope called on wealthy countries to take in more migrants. "Let tragedies like the numerous deaths in lampedusa never happen again", he said. At the beginning of october, 400 african refugees drowned in two shipwrecks off lampedusa.

In addition to the war in syria, the pope also addressed numerous other conflicts in the middle east and africa. Deviating from the text of his speech, he also explicitly called on non-believers to strive for peace.
Among other things, he expressed hope for a solution to the middle east conflict. The peace negotiations between israelis and palastinians should "come to a happy end", he said.

Interpol cancels turkish search for author akhanli

Interpol cancels turkish search for author akhanli

The search request against the koln author dogan akhanli at the international police organization interpol has been removed. "We are pleased that interpol has cancelled the "red notice" against doghan akhanli", it hailed from the foreign office in berlin.

State secretary walter lindner is in contact with his spanish colleague on this issue. It remained unclear at first whether akhanli would be able to leave spain again. Interpol said this evening on request, the organization does not comment on individual cases. The states involved are obliged to.

On the basis of the "red notice" ("rote notiz" or "rote ausschreibung") akhanli had been temporarily arrested last saturday during a vacation in spain at the behest of turkey. Spain released the author, who was born in eastern turkey, after one day – but only under certain conditions. He was not allowed to leave the country, had to surrender his passport and report to the authorities once a week. He was threatened with extradition to turkey, where he is accused of serious crimes.

The french day is a guest in fischbach

the french day is a guest in fischbach

Editors of the french day will be there to answer their questions. Together with mayor wolfgang beiergroblein and the local town councillors, club chairmen and burghers, the fischbach issues can be discussed.
Fischbach, or more precisely the hamlet of tauschendorf, was first mentioned in 1294 in a list of the landholdings of the monastery of langheim. At that time – according to local historians – there were probably already first beginnings of fischbach itself, as it is stated in a contribution to the festschrift of the voluntary fire department from the year 2000.
Fischbach itself is mentioned for the first time in 1325. Under the amt "steinach" (meant is stadtsteinach) is a place "vischbach" registered. At that time, today’s district was not subordinate to nearby kronach, but to stadtsteinach, which was much further away.
The dependence of fischbach on the office of stadtsteinach can be traced throughout the middle ages up to the 19th century. Track the century. Traces of the former affiliation can still be found today – for example in the naming of front and back floors, because this only takes on the right meaning from the perspective of stadtsteinach.
In fischbach, there were three dynasties that continued to serve as noble landlords for almost half a century.
These were first the lords of waldenfels (from about 1450), then from about 1600 the lords of guttenberg – and finally from 1738 on the lords of reitzenstein. They lived with their families in two palaces, of which the "upper" one was the "lower" one right next to the church still exists today. It was a margravial-bayreuth fiefdom, while the lower castle existed as a fiefdom of the prince-bishop of bamberg. From the above-mentioned dynasties came a total of 24 officials.
The first schoolhouse was built in 1755. Fischbach was even briefly part of preuben, but then became part of the electorate of bavaria in 1805. A voluntary fire department was founded there in 1874, two years later a registry office was established. In 1920 came the electric light, 13 years later was built the tram to wustbuch.
In 1972, the two communities of wotzelsdorf and fischbach merged because they wanted to maintain their independence. However, this wish was not fulfilled – instead, 75 percent voted for an affiliation with kronach, thus eliminating the alternative of marktrodach.

Police chief “loses” stars

Police chief 'loses' stars

The head of the kronach police department, uwe herrmann, has been a police councilor since february.

Mr. Herrmann, you are now a police councilor. What does it mean? What will change?
Uwe herrmann: that doesn’t change anything, i’m still head of the kronach police department, my salary has remained the same. The only thing – I lost my stars. (he points to his shoulder flap and laughs).) there used to be five silver ones, now there’s only one, but it’s gold.

How to become a police council?
For me it was a so called modular progression. I have attended three one-week training courses and had an examination interview – and that was successful.

Pirate party launches democracy software 2.0

Pirate party launches democracy software 2.0

"We want the 2.0-politics, we want to organize it as a social network," said the party’s political director, johannes ponader, in berlin. The decision-making processes with the help of this internet platform are a solution to balance the difference between direct democracy and representative democracy with delegates, said deputy federal chairman markus barenhoff at a presentation in berlin.

The long-term goal is a "permanent members’ meeting" for the formation of opinion within the party on the internet. Only elections would not be possible. In the long term, the aim is to create new types of solution systems that can cope with the complexity of issues such as the financial crisis or climate change.

There are currently around 10,000 members registered with the system. Liquidfeedback is actively used by around three to five percent of the party’s 30,000 members, said klaus peukert, who is responsible for the operation of liquidfeedback on the party’s national executive board. This is higher than in other organizations. Currently, there are about ten new initiatives from members every day via liquidfeedback. With the introduction of liquidfeedback 2.0 the pirate party hopes for an increased use of the platform, but does not set itself any targets for it. He expects "that the importance of the system will be strengthened more and more," ponader said, referring to remaining concerns within the party against a comprehensive use of the software.

Construction company defends itself against accusations to work in riedenberg

Construction company defends itself against accusations to work in riedenberg

Now the construction company spoke up. " Of course we can’t let that sit on our hands" the managing director and the construction manager contradict all the accusations made by some of the local councillors. "We are definitely not working too slowly, after all, we are absolutely within the present construction schedule with completion in december 2018:" he also does not want to let stand the claim that the construction team is overtaxed. " They are by no means inexperienced workers who are not able to perform their tasks according to the regulations. The foreman of the crew has been working in the civil engineering industry for ten years and is highly trained. However, it is not surprising that there is uncertainty when constant changes are made by the municipality, which are then discarded several times. It is obvious that the execution of these frequent requests for changes takes time, as often different materials have to be procured."

The managing director also described as absolutely destructive the fact that to date there has been no one clearly in charge of the team. " Planners, mayors, residents – everyone wants to have something to say. The given plans are often not realizable because of the local conditions. Many things have not been thought about beforehand. All this leads to more work, uncertainty and unnecessary loss of time", he continues. " The solution of such planning mistakes is extremely delicate . Only those who cannot understand such a thing will call the work amateurish."

The partial takeover of construction work by the municipality was also often a cause for concern. "Often the municipal workers are in our way, which costs us a lot of time. It was not uncommon for the exit to be blocked by their vehicles, so we had to use the detour route in the residential area to transport the goods away. Otherwise, there was no requirement not to use the goethestrabe", the manager contradicts corresponding statements in the town council. "The damage indicated was definitely already present in the beginning and resulted from earlier construction errors in the construction of the strabe. Moreover, not only our construction vehicles have used the detour route, but also the municipal workers", he continues. "We also could not drive with the construction vehicles over the dredged strabe, because flat lying cables and lines would have been damaged otherwise."

“A classic goal-scorer”: vfb brings in hoffenheim’s ibisevic

"The time in hoffenheim gave me a lot of pleasure. But it has also become too long. I had the feeling that I still had a lot more to do in my career," said the 27-year-old bosnian at his presentation in stuttgart.

Ibisevic’s signature on a treaty that was to run until 2016 sealed a deal that was a great relief to all involved. Vfb sees him as a much-needed boost for the attack, where cacau, julian schieber and pawel pogrebnjak have only managed a meager five goals so far this season. "He’s a classic goal-scorer," said sports director fredi bobic. "He knows the language, he knows the federal league and he has placed his name there for over years."

TSG’s fresh money and the departure of their next long-time top performer also fit in well: the team from hoffenheim is pushing ahead with the rebuilding of their team and, after demba ba (newcastle united), luiz gustavo (bayern munchen) and chinedu obasi (schalke 04), has now let go its fourth former promotion hero in just twelve months.

Model airplane pilots from hochstadt in the waiting loop

Model airplane pilots from hochstadt in the waiting loop

There are more than two sides to this issue. For four years now, the conflict of interests has been smoldering over a roughly 2000-square-meter plot of land between zeublitz (altenkunstadt municipality) and wolfsloch (hochstadt municipality). On the one hand there is the club, whose members want to practice their hobby there. They let model airplanes take to the skies and have a permit (currently limited until summer) from the northern bavaria aviation office. Its members – who are said to include a few people from wolfsloch – come from various places in the district of lichtenfels, where it seems to be becoming increasingly difficult to find a place for just this kind of leisure activity.

The association has leased the land. It is located on the territory of the municipality of altenkunstadt, but the access road is on hochstadt land. Even before the flight operations began in 2009, there were critical voices from both communities because of feared larvae contamination and disturbance of the wildlife. Both municipalities formulated negative opinions, but they were and are not responsible for the approval.

How the legal dispute came about
The legal dispute arose when the hochstadt municipality denied the model airplane group the requested special use permit for the access road. The 90 or so signatures submitted by wolfsloch may have played a more important role than the expected impact on public field and forest paths cited as a reason for the decision.

The eternal franz bohm

The eternal franz bohm

The rumor mill is bubbling, but the parties and groups in the kitzingen city council have not yet been able to present a finished menu. With the exception of klaus christof (KIK), no candidate has yet been selected for the mayoral elections in march 2014. Nevertheless: there is some news. Things are happening behind the scenes.
30 city councillors, seven factions: these are the bare figures from the kitzingen city council. Not every faction will run a candidate for mayor in the march 2014 elections. At least that much is certain. Pro kitzingen, for example, renounces. "We will certainly not run a candidate", says franz bohm, oldest city council member on the board.

Bohm has been a kitzingen city councilor for 35 years, most of that time with the CSU. At the beginning of this legislative period, he and hans schardt founded the "pro kitzingen" group. And it should by no means disappear into oblivion. "We will participate in the elections", bohm announces. In three to four weeks he wants to have founded an association, the preamble is already in work. 30 people for the list should be found, probably bohm himself will also run again. "I don’t want to rule it out", he says. As soon as the other parties have made up their minds about the
if all parties are doing something with their candidates for mayor, pro kitzingen will also decide who to support.

They keep a low profile

this much can be easily assumed: something is happening with all parties about a year before the elections. But little leaks out to the outside world. "We keep a low profile", says SPD caucus leader dr. Brigitte endres-paul. And she is right. Her city council colleague astrid glos is also extremely monosyllabic on this topic. "I assume that a candidate will be nominated", she says, and her comment on markus ostwald’s name appearing in the smoke is monosyllabic: "already."

The chairman of the CSU parliamentary group, andreas moser, had much more to report. With the rumor that he himself will be his party’s new candidate for mayor, he is clearing the air once and for all. "Certainly not." He is on a very good way professionally and, apart from that, there are some suitable candidates. The best possible candidate is selected by a committee consisting of the parliamentary group, the local and district associations, and the women’s and seniors’ unions. A mistake of the past should not be repeated in any case. "This time, the OB candidate will also be on the list", announces moser. In the last election campaign, candidate angelika kuspert had emphasized her independence. "That cost us a few votes", says moser. The result of the next election will of course depend on what the other parties do. Moser is especially curious to see what the free voters will do. "Maybe you support klaus christof?"

Jens pauluhn for the third time?

For an answer it is much too early at the moment. "We would like to put forward our own candidate", declares parliamentary group chairwoman jutta wallrapp. A decision should be made by the beginning of the summer break at the latest. Until then: no further statements.
